Vacation Day #14: A wonderful shower

This is my sweet daughter-in-law Amanda - opening gifts at her baby shower Saturday. It was held at her home in Detroit to make it a bit easier and she isn't due until Nov. 9 so she has plenty of time to go through her gifts and see what she is missing. I don't think she can be missing anything - she got a bazillion outfits, stroller, car seat, bike carriage, swing, diapers, books. Everything was wonderful!

Look at that crazy pile of presents!

There were 11 little girls in sundresses at the shower - the older girls grabbed a front row seat for present opening.

And then they spread out in my son's fields to find butterflies.

Some of the younger ones decided that under the dining table was a great fort while Kiley pointed out that the food was on top!

And here is a tasty treat! Cupcakes and cheesecake - the buffet was scrumptious, with finger sandwiches, lots of salads and a great punch.

I stayed at BFF Donna's house which was lovely - it gave us a chance to talk and catch up. Faye and Kiley stayed at my son's and we all headed back to Machias early Sunday. Only one more day of vacation and I'm going mackerel fishing on the Eastport pier. I know my fishing ability so I'm bringing lunch and a good book!

I'm with Kiley...the food is where it's at! Some of your readers may think you made a quick trip to MI...but we in Maine know better. Enjoy Eastport and your last day of vacation!

Wow - that was some awesome pile 'o gifts!
Enjoy you day of fishing!

I think Kiley has the right idea. Cupcakes are ON the table not under it!

Looks like a baby store! Enjoy the last day of your vacation.

LOL @ Kiley's observations!

Looks like a fabulous time was had by all.

And now, oddly enough, I'm craving cupcakes!

Oh, these pictures are very cute. It's extremely beautiful to see a group of children playing in the field in that way. I wish good luck to your daughter-in-law. Buy Viagra Viagra
